David Cochrane beats RTE to the ‘inevitable’ conclusion…
McDowell is 1100 votes behind Gormley, yet only 950 votes remain to be transferrered, thus he is certain to be eliminated in the next count. Foregone conclusion.
Then: Looks like the twitter text I sent out a few minutes ago was read out by a pundit on RTE Radio 1. Worth bookmarking to hear if there is any official acknowledgement of that!!!
H/T, to the ever vigilant SuperSoupy!!
